I think Sean raises a good point. I guess the larger picture is what are we
trying to protect and what are trying to protect that from.

How much of a problem is traffic from unallocated addresses? Backbone
operators probably have NetFlow data which they could mine to find out. On
the other hand, how much of a problem is obsolete bogon filters causing
everytime IANA delegates another block to an RIR?
Or by the way, how much spoofed traffic uses allocated addresses?
